The word of the Lord endures forever. It will always be there for us. It will never change. It will be our guide and comfort to the end.

     89 LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. 90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. 91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.

     92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.

     93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.

     94 I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.

     95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.

     96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.(KJV)

1. For many years, O God of grace, 
This church has been your dwelling place 
And we your congregation. 
Oh Christ, our precious cornerstone, 
Our faith is built, and Christ alone 
Is still our one foundation. 
This day We pray: 
“Let us greet you, Lord, and meet you 
Here with singing, 
All our praises to you bringing.” 

2. Here children have been born anew 
As manifold as morning dew, 
Their vows to you confessing. 
Here many found a table spread, 
They ate Christ’s body with the bread 
And drank the cup of blessing. 
This day We pray: 
“Let none falter At you altar. 
We adore you, 
Gladly worship here before you.” 

3. Here when the marriage vows were made, 
Both bride and groom besought your aid, 
Your love their own transcending. 
Here mourners, with their troubled hearts, 
Have found the peace your Word imparts, 
The joy that has no ending. 
This day We pray: 
“May the story of your glory 
Here resounding 
Be a song of grace abounding!”
